How to Find Keyword Ideas on Pinterest

Pinterest is a great source of keyword ideas thanks to Guided Search and provides a lot of insight into how and what people are searching for on the platform. Pinterest’s guides, or the boxes up at the top of Pinterest search results, help Pinterest users navigate interests and explore ideas topically. The other advantage to using these guides for keyword ideas is they change dynamically based on user engagement with the highest trending and engaging guides at the forefront of the guide list.

Here’s how to grab all the keywords from Pinterest’s Guided Search and use them to create new content ideas.

How to Find Keywords on Pinterest

  1. Type in your main search idea into Pinterest search on a desktop computer and pull up the results page.
  2. Below the search bar, click just in front of the first guide box and drag down while holding the mouse button down. You’ll select the entire list this way.
  3. Copy the list and paste it into a text editor. As a tip, paste as plain text if you can to prevent the images being copied over too.
  4. Now you have an entirely new list of keyword ideas in order of engagement and popularity according to Pinterest!

Your audience might see different keywords at the top of Guided Search but this is definitely a start on the right path.
